FERNIE, BC - WOW! How about the mountains we skied and ripped this past six months receiving so far 603 feet of POW this season! Don?t believe me, check out our snow conditions page and add up all the total snowfall counts from the resorts SnowSeekers? covers.  That works out to be around 60 storeys of snow!

We?re well into spring ski season and by the looks of those base packs we could be skiing until Canada Day if we wanted to. I know I do.  Rad that in addition to all that snow we get to enjoy epic patio sessions in the sunshine, and there?s also a buffet of kick-ass events to ensure a spring ski season that?s stellar.

May 10 ? May 12
